Control and data plane separation
Segment routing architecture
BGP Peering segments
Hardware: It is highly recommended that participants bring their own laptop computers for lab work.
Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client
Confirm Secure SHell (SSH) is allowed from your corportate/home network to access the lab infrastructure.
